Configuring a Wireless LAN interface with access only to the WAN (internet)

I am setting up a new office building with a Sonicwall Pro 3060 Enhanced OS firewall.  We have our WAN and LAN interfaces configured and working.  I need to configure another interface for use by wireless network users as well as some conference room and travel office users.  We do NOT want these connections to have any access to our LAN -- they are strictly internet access only (guest users).

Can anyone help me configure an interface on the Sonicwall to do this?

do you have Vlans option on your sonicwall if so create a new vlan associate with a port connect your accespoints to this. Naturally accesspoint should have its own DHCP

this network needs to act separate in its own entirety hence it needs dhcp server

"this network needs to act separate in its own entirety hence it needs dhcp server" -- amajidkh

this is exactly right.  It needs to be a seperate network.  We have the complete segregation from the business network.

This network can have it's own DHCP server.  That shouldn't  be an issue -- we can configure the Sonicwall with a DHCP scope for that particular interface.

We will be connecting Sonicpoint Access points (up to 8).

i think vlans are not supported on 3060 but on 4060, you could put a rule on the interface to only allow access to default wan gateway and thats it
